Raga Dharmavati

The versatile T V Gopalakrishnan sings an RTP in the 59th Melakarta raga.

The Ragam Tanam Pallavi has for long been the showpiece of performance, calling attention, as it does, to the technical competence of the artiste. The tala often becomes important in exhibiting one’s prowess, and the pallavi too is suitably selected so that it retains its integrity even when intricate mathematical combinations are performed. The trikaalam, and anuloma-pratiloma test the artiste's capability in handling performing the pallavi at various speeds and also changing the speed of the tala. In this programme, T V Gopalakrishnan sings a Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Dharmavati. He is accompanied by S Varadarajan on the violin, T V Vasan on the mridangam, and V Suresh on the ghatam.
